I try this one, hoping it matches the subject. Taken earlier this year in the Bavarian Alps. By the way: I'm a hardcore fan of the Sigma 12-24! Cheers, Christoph

Weekly Challenge #483-Movement (using Time Exposure)

I have this one, 1,6 seconds. The flash froze the motion of the girls. The background came in due to the long exposure and got blurred, giving the photo an impression of speed. Or so I hope.;)

Weekly Challenge Winners #477- Nature claws back - Winners

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this contest and apologies again for messing up the deadline. Well, let's forget that. Here are my thoughts about the entries:

- Kerrowdown, "Lock Gate": Intriguing picture. Beautiful composition of lines. Maybe the dark space on the left could be a bit smaller.
- Bruce Clark: Beautiful course of sharpness and colours.
- othar: Perfect interpretation of the theme.
- SpecialK: Fascinating fisheye view, impressively showing the strength little plants can have.
- aaacb: Bokeh abounds!
- gump: Beautiful composition. Nice colours, impressive clouds.
- atupdate: Circles, darkness and a bird's nest. Who could ask for more?.
- Vaskebjorn: The cart seems to think: "Where are they gone?" A thinking cart, good luck copying that!
- RGlasel: Green abounds!
- ramseybuckeye: Impressive composition which would certainly look terrific as a large print.
- jacamar: Almost an abstract, nice colours!
- PintofDog, "Orford Ness - Nuclear bomb test bunker": Nature defeats nuclear bombs. Who would have thought it possible?
- Hattifnatt: Impressive sunset.
- noelcmm: Green abounds!

And here are my winners, chosen completely subjectively:

Third place: atupdate. The composition is simply compelling.
Second place: ramseybuckeye. Would possibly be the winner if this was a large print contest.

Tada, first place: Kerrowdown, never mind the surplus of dark. (Wow, that almost sounds like a line in a song!) I always kept coming back to your picture. So it's once again up to you to host the next contest!

Cheers everybody, and thanks again for sending in your entries!

I just realized that I got the end date wrong. Since this is a weekly challenge it should have been November 20, of course! In order to avoid disadvantaging anybody who trusted in the previously stated deadline I prolong the contest until Sunday, November 24. Sorry for the mistake!

Thanks again Kerrowdown for a wonderful contest last week. Here we go again! My theme is "Nature claws back", meaning your picture should show a man built structure of any kind being recaptured by nature. Apart from this there are no requirements, so feel free to use the decay, for instance, as background for a portrait. Have fun!

Rules
1. Post ONE photo.
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

One example:

---------- Post added 11-14-19 at 08:15 PM ----------

I forgot one thing: The contest will close next Wednesday 27th November at midnight CET.
